France’s Van Cleef & Arpels is showing off its creativity with the jeweler’s first display at the Masterpiece London fair June 25 through July 1.

Attending a fair presents brands with an opportunity to showcase pieces to highly engaged consumers whether they are established enthusiasts, collectors or passersby.

During Masterpiece London, Van Cleef & Arpels will have “nearly a century of creativity” on display where it will present to attendees its history of fine art and design. The pieces selected for Masterpiece London highlight Van Cleef & Arpel’s heritage, high-jewelry and watchmaking.
